3D Endoscopy for Thoracic Spine Surgery

The IMAGE1 S 3D camera platform provides surgeons with excellent depth perception. Furthermore, the 3D stereoscopic imaging system is particularly valuable for activities that demand a high degree of spatial perception. Thanks to the modular system design, existing 2D systems can be upgraded to 3D.

Special Features:

  • 3D system featuring video endoscopes with diameters of 10 mm and 4 mm as well as VITOM® 3D
  • Easy switchover from 3D to 2D
  • Compatible with the IMAGE1 S camera platform
  • Three innovative visualization technologies for easy tissue differentiation in 2D and 3D:
    – CLARA: Homogeneous illumination
    – CHROMA: Contrast enhancement
    – SPECTRA*: Spectral color shift and switch
  • Instruments specially developed for thoracic interventions featuring a unique design and ergonomic handles

SpineTIP – System Optimized for Approaches to Percutaneous Endoscopic Lumbar Decompression

Special Features:

  • One system – three sets optimized for standard approaches:
    Transforaminal, interlaminar and posterolateral
  • Brilliant image quality ensures clear visibility during surgery
  • Reusable bipolar electrodes for effective tissue and bone resection
  • Ergonomic DRILLCUT-X® II Spine handpiece with matching single-use burrs for precise and powerful ablation of bone material during fully endoscopic percutaneous surgery
  • Ergonomic and color-coded instruments for use in a safe and controlled manner

EasyGO!® II Generation – Tubular System for Endoscopic Spine Surgery

Special Features:

  • A wide range of applications for treating degenerative spine diseases at the lumbar and cervical levels
  • The second, completely reworked generation provides significantly more working space and application possibilities
  • Specially adapted telescopes and the high-resolution KARL STORZ FULL HD technology enable clear and distinct differentiation of anatomic structures
  • Sequential dilation and the use of smaller trocar sizes can reduce muscle trauma and skin incision length
  • Specially developed malleable drill handpieces for use with all trocar lengths

UNIDRIVE® S III NEURO – Multifunctional High-Speed Motor System for all Indications in Neurosurgery and Spine Surgery

Special Features:

  • The ergonomic DRILLCUT-X® II spine handpiece enables precise and powerful ablation of bone material during percutaneous full endoscopic surgery
  • High-speed handpieces feature a quiet drilling performance, even at speeds up to 100,000 rpm
  • Particularly long, malleable high-speed handpieces can be used for specific surgical techniques (e.g. tubular dilation systems)
  • The motor control unit features intuitive touch screen control and supports handpiece changeover via automatic motor recognition

VITOM® 3D – 3D Visualization for Open Spine Surgery

The VITOM® 3D system provides many surgical disciplines with a revolutionary solution for the visualization of microsurgical and open surgical interventions. Application possibilities are similar to that of the operating microscope. The most important functions are controlled via the IMAGE1 PILOT which is mounted to the OR table in close proximity to the surgeon.

  • Smaller, lighter and more compact than an operating microscope
  • Lower acquisition costs and creates synergistic effects with endoscopy by using the same video tower – thus combining the benefits of endoscopy and microscopy
  • Ergonomic work – the user is not confined to the eyepiece
  • Improved workflow – the OR team can view the procedure in the same image quality as the surgeon

VITOM® II Spine 90°

Unique System for Open Spine Surgery

Special Features:

  • 90° arrangement of VITOM® II for greater flexibility in a wide range of applications
  • Great depth of field, optimal magnification and excellent color rendition
  • Integrated illuminator provides considerably more light
  • Ergonomic work in a correct posture with a clear view of the monitor
  • Combined application with spine retractors, retractors and tubular trocars such as the EASYGO!® II generation possible
